however I sure hope someone got fired for the blunder of showing Homer fully dressed when the mob arrive at their house and then in a dressing-gown and slippers in the next scene to set up the accidental exposure gag.

I read it as being the next day. The mob had been outside the house all night demonstrating.

Feel free to fire yourself from whatever it is you do.

This is an unbelievably funny episode, even today. Last time I watched, I did cringe painfully at the line, "Don't worry, your tears say more than real evidence ever could", but I'll allow it.

Not quite equally, Ashley's line about "men always following their video games" is weak and patronising, although it is saved by Bart running into the door frame.

"Even the man in the White House? Not likely!"

Isn't it 'WITH a man in the White House?'

No. The bit where Marge says that they're setting up some sort of shanty town comes after Homer's Marylin Monroe impression.

Yes.

I though it was "*the* man in the white house", that man specifically being Bill Clinton, which would make sense with it being a Fox TV movie, and being 1994 maybe or maybe not for other reasons.

Sounds like 'with a man' to me.  Although I can see both versions making sense.

It does sound like "with a man". I was wrong.
